    Magnet Coordinator / Transportation Coordinator 

    The Rice School/La Escuela Rice is an HISD Magnet School for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), serving grades K-8. Our middle school is a relatively small one (approximately 480 students) that shares a campus with our elementary school of approximately 680 students. All of our students are admitted on a magnet transfer; therefore, we have no zoned attendance. Our students live in all parts of Houston, and approximately 90 percent utilize HISD transportation. All students must submit an application; selection is completed through a lottery process.
